marigold yellow


All Soul's Day is traditionally November 2. Also celebrated as El Dia de los Muertos when one of the customs is to decorate graves with lots of marigolds.
My offering today is a bit of a scan of my much larger painting. I am working on a series of sunflowers, with lots of yellows of all varieties.
This painting is in process, lots of work still going into the finish.

Great beginning! The color contrasts and dynamic forms are exciting.

BEautiful work, Janice! I love Marigolds, and I didn't realize that was of the traditions surrounding All Souls Day!
